In the Stars for May
The spring season continues with the transiting Sun in Taurus. Nature is blossoming for most of the northern hemisphere; this is a good time for growth, gardening, pleasant outdoor activities and appreciation of all that is around us without and within. Taurus loves music and dancing this may be a good way to celebrate living on earth.
Taurus is a practical earth sign and its fixThe ed meaning it does not like change but craves security and seeks to control through earthy possession the keyword for Taurus is “I Have” attainment and status is often important to this earth sign. Ruled by Venus Taurus likes to be charming, affectionate and seeks pleasing situations and environments. Taurus natives are strongly rooted in their opinions and may remain stubborn until they see the value in the opposing point of view, however, generally, they do love to take care of others and especially provide loved ones with financial security, dedication and loyalty being import to them in relationships. They can be patient and reliable but if you continuously take them for granted or disrespect them too often that calm demeanour gives way to their anger and they will charge you just like the bull their sign represents. But generally, these are fun loving calm and generous folks of the zodiac. Jupiter in the water sign Scorpio has been opposing Taurus this month and this may cause you to feel good and likely to go overboard with indulgences on the positive side this aspect provides courage where needed and confidence. If you can’t follow through on commitments try to prioritize. Have a Happy Birthday Taurus.

Mercury Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn could release restriction and provide avenues for freedom. Venus in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces adding confusion to any decisions so be thoughtful before embarking forward as Neptune tends to blur and confuse things. Mother’s Day on the 13thshould be pleasant while the Moon is in Taurus so lots of appreciation Mercury also transits into Taurus lending sensible, practical perspectives thus helping in keeping all communications calm and collected. Mercury and Uranus conjoin this week perhaps some intuitive flashes will be felt around practical solutions to problems.

May 21-27th, Monday First Quarter Moon in the analytical earth sign Virgo brings us down to earth dealing with tasks and duties. This is a good week to start those projects and analyze which ones to move forward. The weekend looks a bit more challenging than last as Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, lending energies for spiritual questing or escapist tendencies like lying on the couch video binging. It is difficult to get things done with these transits also with Venus Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn, go with the flow.
May 28-31 This month will finish with another Full Moon in the enthusiastic fire sign Sagittarius on Tues. May 29th, this is a good time to take stock of our positive goals and communicate them as Mercury slips into Gemini an air sign it rules stepping up the level of interest in goals and communication systems.
As always astrology is an ancient system of divination through the zodiac liken to a voyage we can choose how to work with the energy and determine our own destiny.
